NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL122018
1100 AM AST Mon Sep 24 2018
Analysis of the directional ambiguities from a recent ASCAT
scatterometer overpass indicated that the system lacks the closed
circulation that is a prerequisite for tropical cyclone status.
Therefore, advisories are being discontinued at this time. The
ASCAT data showed that the system is now a sharp trough accompanied
by an area of gale-force winds that will be handled in High Seas
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. The remnants of
Kirk will be monitored during the next few days in case regeneration
into a tropical cyclone should occur.
Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service...under AWIPS
header NFDHSFAT1 and WMO header FZNT01 KWBC.
